Hollywood actor Woody Harrelson's dad has lost his appeal for freedom as he serves a murder sentence in a Texas jail.

CHARLES HARRELSON has repeatedly declared his innocence in the 1979 murder of federal judge John Wood, but his pleas were ignored recently when he appealed to America's Supreme Court.

Harrelson was jailed when prosecutors convinced a jury in Texas that he had been hired to shoot Wood.
